"And if there is a possibility that Juventus can sign this player you have to use this chance because I think he is a free agent in the summer period".

The 23-year-old Reds midfielder is out of contract in six months and the Italian champions are said to hold a strong interest in signing the Germany worldwide to bolster their squad.

Can is reportedly on course to join Juventus in the summer when his contract runs out, and Khedira - whose place could come under threat with Can's arrival - insisted that the 23-year-old signing for I Bianconeri would be something of a coup.

Although Khedira admits Can has room to improve, he acknowledges the ability and potential his global teammate could offer the Old Lady.

The 2014 World Cup victor added: "He still must learn things and grow, given his age, but if I were Juventus, I'd jump at the chance to sign him".

Can would represent another high-profile departure for a team that lost star player Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in a £145m move this month.

Can has played in 17 out of Liverpool's 22 Premier League games so far this season.

Liverpool could see Emre Can leave the club in the summer and not receive a penny for their troubles.

Juve are locked in a two-way battle with Napoli for the Scudetto, while the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City have emerged as serious contenders for Europe's elite club trophy.
